And Lame-o was its name-o!!!
I don\'t like warrior bumblebee.
So they're not PotP quality, but they're good for what they are. I'm sure they'll appeal to the target audience. I certainly would have been into them at that age.
As a collector all I have to say is...Wow this sucks!
These are atrocious, whatever happened to the build quality of transformers? Transformers animated was geared towards kids and those figures were solid.
I can't be the only one thinking Bumblebee's vehicle mode looks like Hot Shot's...right?
They did. Vietnam. Though these may be the first produced in India as Hasbro wanted to go there.
So, don't collect and leave them for the kids they are meant for.
Not sure why but the pics in the front page gallery are like the colors were reversed or something . with the majority in a magenta color.
I checked another gallery and it is the same and colors are noprmal elsewhere on the site.
I will now and forever refer to Starscream as "Bania".
On the plus side...his Scout toy has an official Guardian configuration...yay for Macross fans?
Shockwave aside, these are...underwhelming after seeing the Studio Series and what's ahead for POTP. It's like seeing a high-grade professional art piece (Studio Stinger) then having it followed up with a 5th grader's final art project (those Scout toys). I know they're geared towards a younger crowd, but so was the Unicron Trilogy and we got some cool toys out of that. Blech.
ultra class grimlock looks decent (needs new dino head though, or headcanon my brother's jurassic world dino name "VelocoTeerexasaur" to justify sillly head) and shockwave is the gem in my opinion (I can see a third party upscaled KO selling like hotcakes) but the rest are sure passes for me... on another note, this looks HILARIOUS
"Daawww... it thinks it's people"
So, I don't know if it's been said or not already, but based on the images that I've seen of the Scouts, they don't seem to fully even have alt modes. Grimlock's fists are molded in place, and Megatron just doesn't have a cannon.
Did I miss something?
I noticed that as well. Truly terrible. The designs here are mostly good outside of Bumblebee, but the small figures are trash. Why even bother? I would've hated those as a kid.
are those firing missiles in Starscream? because if so that's a great toy concept if it works like G2 Dreadwing
Geeze, overall they look bad.
The only things that impressed me were Grimlock's fire breathing gimmick and Starscream's missile cluster gimmick.
Immediately thought of this when I saw Starscream's missile clusters:
I thought Hasbro had a thing about having multiple versions of the same character out at the same time competing with each other. Why does this line have 3 Starscream's in 3 different sizes? Is that really necessary? Isn't that like a total waste of money to produce when other characters could fill that slot?
I was thinking the same thing, but I guess a Scout Megatron/Grimlock/Starscream would be projected to sell more than Huffer/Gears/Brawn, even though they'd be out of scale with everything else. Kid wants a Megatron, parents don't want to spend $30, so they buy the Scout.
It's lame, but I can see the logic behind it....which kinda sounds like the "DVD cover quote" for this line. I don't understand the "half-transforming" Scout thing though.
To buy or to not, that is the question, for the wallet is truly mightier than the word.
Not for years. The last time I even heard of that concern was during TFA. And even then, that was between separate lines, not separate size-classes within a line.
We've had the same character in multiple sizes for years now. Hell that was 90% of RID.
I would have bought Megatron, but he doesn't seem to have elbows. I could have replaced the head for something better but the lack of articulation just ruins it.
Separate names with a comma.
